Hello everyone, I am having problems getting a USR 5686D external modem to work with my 3C510 3COM router. The only lights that are on on the modem are the "TR" and "CS" ones. When I try to connect I get a "dial up failed" message with no dial up tones or anything displayed on the 3COM's maintenace page ( I used a Actiontec EX560LKC previously and it worked great right out of the box. ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated. Am I wrong in assuming that no drivers are required since this modem is connected directly to the router?
Thanks in advance,

Hook the modem up to a COM port on your PC, direct connect Hyperterminal and make sure it works

If it does, your problem could be
cable from modem to router;
setup of router -
Setup of modem (dip switches / stored initialization in NVRAM)
